Simply Magnolia DT - Happy Birthday

Morning All!!! Unusual for me to be posting on a Saturday but here I am and very excited too as this is my very first dt card for the fabby Simply Magnolia Challenge! Our challenge this time is a nice easy one for you all and is "Happy Birthday" so that actually leaves it wide open. I eventually got Tilda's car and couldn't wait to ink it up! Isn't it just fab? I made this card last Saturday and then when the Magnolia Down Under challenge went live I saw that they had a sketch exactly the same as I've done and got all excited but sadly there challenge closes before I post this, oh well so sad too bad (sob).

All the dps I have used are Magnolia and are distressed. I made the banner with some of the dp and a piece of twine. The sentiment is by LOTV. The flower is a doohickey die and the ribbon is from my stash. Again as usual my image has been coloured in with Copics. I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Bling it on - Anything goes
Crafts & Me - Favourite stamp (Tilda)
Creative Inspirations - Red, white & blue
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Totally Tilda - Distressing

[Edit: It appears that the challenge date and day on our DT blog did not coincide, apologies for that. My post is therefore a day early. Please pop around to the SM challenge blog tomorrow as challenges run bi-weekly on Sundays. The positive is that you have a whole day in advance to think about what you'll be making for the challenge...hehe]

Thanks for stopping by and please do go and check out the Simply Magnolia Blog and join in with us. Hope you're having a super weekend! Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
